Out of the Blue

I did MrsBlue the favor of polishing a copper cookie cutter this morning, as my stubborn streak makes me the go-to guy for tedious clean-up chores here in the BlueTower. I got that little gingerbread shape into near new cleanliness thanks to a little copper cleanser and a lot of elbow grease, but I am now paying the price. It turns out it is far easier to get tarnish off of copper than it is to get the copper smell off your hands when you are done, and at this point the odor is becoming nauseous. I think the next time I get roped into that chore I will be wearing some serious gloves, if not a hazmat suit. Blech.
